5. Mandatory Core Standards for Associations

Twenty-five Association Executives from around the state gathered May 9th at the Michigan Realtors® headquarters for a presentation given by Gavin Blair, the Local Executive Officer from Dayton Association of REALTORS® regarding mandatory core standards for local, state and territorial Realtor® associations. These Core Standards, are intended to ensure high-quality service for all members and cover the following areas: Code of Ethics enforcement and education, advocacy, consumer outreach, unification efforts and support of the Realtor® organization, technology, and financial solvency. Michigan AEs felt the new core standards are things they are doing already or should be and made sense to them. Melissa Tee of the Jackson Area Association of REALTORS® added, “The Michigan AE’s greatly appreciated being informed on the proposed NAR Core Organizational Standards prior to attending the NAR meetings in Washington D.C. last week. Gavin Blair, Core Standards PAG Member, gave a very thorough presentation answering all the AE’s questions. Thank you to Michigan Realtors® staff for coordinating such a timely, great meeting!”
